The Green Fellowship

The Green Fellowship is an undergraduate research program administered by UT Southwestern and UT Dallas. The program provides UT Dallas students with research training and experience that leads to an understanding of the planning, discipline, and teamwork involved in addressing basic research problems in medical research. Designed for students from a variety of scientific fields, including biology, chemistry, physics, neuroscience, and engineering, the Green Fellowship offers the opportunity to step away from classes and participate full-time in a medical research project at UT Southwestern.

The Green Fellowship is an intensive experience in which students will work full-time on the UT Southwestern campus. To facilitate full-time participation, the program provides UT Dallas students with the following benefits:

  • UT Dallas undergraduate 12 hours of research credit – students will maintain their status as full-time undergraduate students registered at UT Dallas.
  • $4,000 stipend – students will receive a one-time stipend of $4,000 to defray the costs of the semester.
  • Placement in a UT Southwestern Research Lab.

Green Fellows will pursue individual research projects under the direction of a member of the graduate school faculty at UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. The program will be supplemented with lectures and seminars of general interest to students. Green Fellows will be concurrently enrolled in undergraduate research at UT Dallas but must be available full-time to participate in research at UT Southwestern and will not be able to take additional classes at UT Dallas during the Spring semester other than the required research credits.
